Math graduate admission question
I'm currently a junior in mathematics at UIUC. I have been doing pretty well in my math courses (2 courses in real analysis, 1 linear and 1 abstract algebra, 1 topology) so far, and I'm having mostly A and A+. I will be completing a graduate course in topology, a second course in abstract algebra, and a complex analysis course before I graduate. My question is: Do graduate schools care more about my math courses grades more or my general GPA more? I feel that I can work hard to maintain good grades in my math courses, but my other courses ( some general education courses) are not that good (some B and C's). Will those general education courses hurt my chances of getting to good grad schools?
